What is Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)?
With an estimate of half the world currently having a presence online, it has become increasingly necessary to protect ourselves against cybercrimes.
As with normal crimes that increase when the population goes up, cybercrime is no different.
PKI is the safeguard that protects our data, information and provides secure online service delivery.
Why do people hate recruiters?
Why do people hate recruiters?
The reason people hate recruiters as a whole boils down to the age-old mindset of “a person can do something right a hundred times, but they will be remembered for the one time they did it wrong”. There are many good recruiters out there who value the people they work with and value their reputation – doing the best job they possibly could.
However, some recruiters spoil the bunch, that value metrics and money above all else. There will also be recruiters who lack knowledge of the industry and are just ignorant of doing things appropriately. Recruiting is fairly easy to enter the field, and has high earning potential and incentives, this can explain the reasoning behind these shortcomings – as explained by Kenneth Ryu inhis reply on Quora.
What are the bad recruiters doing?
Bad recruiters often have the same practices they follow that give them the bad name that they have.
The most common unethical practices they have include not screening CVs properly, which results in candidates being put up for positions they are either under or overqualified for, or not even interested in at all, ghosting candidates who do not get accepted, spamming candidates, or badgering them for intrusive personal information, and even lie or misinterpret either the candidates or the job.
All these unethical practices can lead to prolonged hiring processes, become an annoyance to candidates, and result in unhappy candidates and employers. They have put in unnecessary positions or career paths they do not want to be in. Most of these practices were explained quite thoroughly by Jeff Smith in his post on HireWell.
As with any field or industry, there are bad apples, with most of the problems in recruiting stem from the ignorance and incentives that this industry provides. But, do not let the bad deter you, as there are also many good recruiters out there that have your best interest at heart.
Do yourself the favour and look into recruiters you wish to use, just as you would want them to look into you when placing you into an open position. If all candidates do their homework on recruiters and make use of the good ones (of which there are many) the bad ones will eventually be filtered out completely.
Current Technological Business Trends…2021.
It’s 2021 and it’s been over a year since COVID-19 changed the way we live, interact and run our businesses.
With vaccines being administered around the world, there does seem to be a light at the end of this tunnel, however, even if COVID-19 no longer plays a role in our lives, the way it has changed the world will certainly not – as said by Bernard Marr in his post on Forbes – “In many ways, Covid-19 will act as a catalyst for a whole host of changes that were already on the cards anyway, thanks to our increasingly online and digital lives.
Things will just happen more quickly now, with necessity (long acknowledged as the mother of invention) as the driving force.
And should it be the case that – as certain US presidents have predicted – Covid-19 “magically disappears” – the changes it has brought about will not, as we will have learned to do a lot of things more efficiently and safely.”
So, with the changes, we’ve all had to make and the way businesses have had to adapt, there are some technological business trends we would recommend you keep an out for.
While there are many technological business trends that have emerged (forcefully) since last year, these are definitely the ones to keep your eyes on, as they pave the way for most of the other trends which will see growing success in the years to come. Make sure you evolve with the times.
